Vinyl Pull No. 15

Well shit, this LP, A Ass Pocket of Whiskey, by R.L. Burnside is one of my very favorites of all time– for several reasons. First off, it gives me an erection. I’m just Joshing but typing the word erection gave me an erection. I have to try something here and now, erection, erection, erection, erection. Did anyone climax? I didn’t either. It just desensitized me and now I feel like I’m back in control. At least we were mature enough to see what happened together. I really can’t think of an album that does give me a doinker, the closet thing may be an audio recording I made of myself doing jumping jacks and then eating French toast, but yet again I’m way off track. My friend bought this C.D. for me on my 19th birthday. Back then I would take the hour drive to Columbus a couple times a month to scour the campus record stores for Nirvana bootlegs. I was doing just that when I noticed this recording in a display case. The cover certainly catches the eye but more importantly some devious little clerk had written on the price tag “w/The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion”. I knew I had to have it but I had to wait an hour to listen as my benefactor didn’t have a c..d. player in his car. I got home and immediately put it in and put on the headphones as I was prone to do for hours each day back when I was just a budding flower.

MAN that first track hit me as hard as any opening track has before or since. I still can feel that sweet nausea I had, just thinking back to that moment. It was perfect then and remains perfect now—to me, and that’s what matters when you’re listening to music right? Check it out:

R.L. Burnside, in my opinion, is one of the coolest humans to ever exist and I found him by chance, maybe it was fate. This stroke of luck is a good part of the reason our sister app TriYou (coming soon) was created. I got the vinyl as soon as I became aware it was available but that must have been over a decade ago, back when men were men and ate raw meat and shit vegetables. I still find it hard to believe this album was recorded in just one afternoon and I often had wished they had taken more time and worked together more, but now I think maybe this couldn’t have been duplicated any other way and the raw, punk feeling may not have shone through like it does. What I mean by working together more is the Blues Explosion backing R.L. It seems like such a perfect pairing. It’s as gritty as albums get but still very listenable and packs a heavy punch and its FUN. It really sounds like they are having the times of their life making this album and I got that feeling when I was fortunate enough to see Burnside play live—he gave one of the most joyful and great performances that I have witnessed. This is an album that you just have to listen to and if you never have before I’m a little jealous that you get to experience that now. It ends chaotically just as it should.
